Some excellent examples to draw upon when developing a CFP. Highlights include communicating to proposers:
* conference's distictive character
* suggested or preferred topics
* logistics such as where, when, audience size, etc
* speaker package such as travel, honorarium, etc
* evalution process
* timelines
* assistance available for new speakers
* mutual expectations

Everyday Sins of Internationalization
When we think of internationalization, we're drawn to technical aspects. Are we using the right character set? Can this wording be translated? And what about content negotiation? Ugh, such a pain in the ass.
Many of the conversations wind up being deferred for later -- for the day when we're preparing to expand into another country. Meanwhile, we're unknowingly committing everyday sins. Users, please forgive us.
Cultures vary. People within them do too. Porting out local certainties can set a course to epic fail. There are easy opportunities we're missing out on, right now.
